Bots are accounts on the SoylentNews wiki that are used to perform automated edits.
- Hide their edits from recent changes for most users
- Automatically mark their own edits as "patrolled"
- Move pages without leaving a redirect behind
- Add external links that are not whitelisted to pages without having to complete a CAPTCHA
